New advances are being made in brain science today that will directly affect our lives, from the courtroom to the classroom to the living room. "Cerebrum" has long been the leading journal in distilling these developments in neuroscience for the general reader, and its articles by scientists and scholars are cited in prominent publications such as the "Wall Street Journal", "Boston Globe", and "Washington Post". Now assembled here is the second anthology of articles from "Cerebrum"'s Web edition about the latest developments in brain science.The featured articles offer thought-provoking analyses of the human brain and its untapped possibilities, touching on topics as diverse as how discoveries in brain science can help us design the best nursing facilities for patients with Alzheimer's disease, the risks and rewards of new drugs based on living cells, why remembering our past is essential to planning for the future, and when we can and should use drugs to control our emotional lives. Top scientists and scholars - including acclaimed science writer Carl Zimmer, psychiatrist Paul R. McHugh, neurologist Michael Selzer, and neurobiologist Vivian Teichberg - clearly and concisely explain these and many other exciting developments on the horizon.An engaging and wholly readable compendium, "Cerebrum 2008" is essential for all those interested in the cutting edge of brain research and what it holds for the future of humanity.
